  • For those who did not subscribe yet ...

    ... you still can for the first DDC event in 2011 (and the second ever ). As we communicated before , this time we will have 2 sequential sessions and contrary to our first event this will NOT be a purely technical happening. The first session will be performed by Arne de Booij, Senior UX Researcher at Microsoft for the Dynamics product family. In this session Arne will shed light on the background of the role-based thinking and,based on the results of a survey among more than 15 companies…

  • Why is MS asking me to help improve PartnerSource/CustomerSource?

    When was your last time facing this screen? Mine was last week. And then I took the screen shot and decided to write a blog on it. Or actually, I had even decided on that way-before as this "feedback" screen keeps on appearing every now and then. Even those days-after every time I dutifully did "help". I guess I can cope with that Usability Sciences stalker. I can cope with the fact that for every search I do on PartnerSource I have to relearn how to find what I am looking for. Fortunately…

No big issues (so far), but some minor, mainly translation matters.

  • Never Use VALIDATE ...

    ... unless your have a good reason for it! Already a year ago I wrote my Validating Data series. And only a couple of weeks ago me and my colleague were investigating one of our solutions that had a performance issue and were faced with code that wasn't quite SMART with respect to using VALIDATEs. If you're not sure what I am referring to (re)read this post: Validating Data #4: Assignment and VALIDATE . Rule-of-Thumb vs. Rule-of-Thumb And there we were sitting. Me wondering how an intelligent…

  • Building an International Solution - BaIS #1

    With this BaIS sequel I am going to create a collection of findings and thoughts on the various things we are coming across within Imtech ICT during our quest in building international solutions. Findings and thoughts not always logically ordered, but worth sharing with and getting comments on from the Dynamics community. So be invited to comment on them. Possibly this might lead to some sort of white paper on BaIS and Dynamics NAV, who knows. BaIS #1: Source Control, Branching and Merging…
